Lawyers for Aaron Hernandez submit court filings, possibly seeking a new trial

Aaron Hernandez listens during his murder trial at the Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, Mass. on Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015.

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) – Lawyers for Aaron Hernandez have submitted court filing that could mean they are seeking a new trial.

The Boston Globe reports that lawyers submitted four new court filings, including one requesting an investigation into juror’s exposure to related issues.

These filings mean a juror could have been exposed to information about the trial, or voice an opinion before the trial was over.

Hernandez was sentenced back in April to life in prison for the murder of Odin Lloyd.
